Ok, but battery dies within hours

Given the proice, this basic phone is a very good buy. But the battery, fully charged over night, barely lasts more than a couple of hours in my pocket. AT&T replaced the battery, but the new one was, if possible, even worse.

Good bad or ugly ?

The host web browser is a bumpy ride but some features are functional. Can download multiple files at once. Hinders access to your yahoo mail accounts. Requiring you to create a new yahoo mail account for mobile. That was frustrating. I also use opera mini 4.5 And ucweb 9.0 Both deliver a more stable and user friendly experience when on the web. However the permissions won't let you stream video via a 3rd party midlet browser...You have to defer to the host browser....And that is a bumpy ride. Mp3 player is good but not user friendly.Qwerty board is better for small thumbs however is funtional after you get used to it. Can't turn off the qwerty backlight..!!!! That is a terrible feature. The neon blue backlight is blinding in a low light situation..Hurting the eyes...I don't dislike the phone but i don't love it either. Good for someone that views it as a disposable phone. Great for what you pay though. Less

This phone is good

however when you try to create your own ringtones, no matter the size. it says the size is too big, even if you try just a 10kb sized file.
